My Wemos card is reseting for unknown reason. For example, the pump plugged on the relay works fine till 1am and then the pump stop. After a few research I figured out the ESP should reset because all internal parameters are reseted. enter image description here

My hardware is simple Wemos card + relay + sensors (not here because not connected yet). enter image description here

My program is quite complex. I can command/configure the wemos via webservice (ex relay on pin 5 with on 5min/off 10min). https://github.com/TittyPanda/ESP-commander/blob/master/ESP-COMMANDER

  • OK if no AC device is connected on relay (no reset)
  • OK if a light is connected on relay
  • The issue occurs only when the water pump is connected

Maybe it's an electrical/electromagnetical thing because the pump has motor. What do you think ?


EDIT Power part are done with common wires from power extension cord

AC-DC converter 5 V 1A 1.5A 500mA C-DC converter

Pump 40W 3000L/H 220V 50Hz Pump

    What is your pump current consumption? this sound like that you have a power supply that can't deliver sufficient power to the overall circuitry.

  • It could well be EMI induced by the pump. You need to specify more details about exactly what hardware you're using - what pump, what power supplies, what wiring, etc.

  • Thanks I added pump & converter info in the post Feb 11 '20 at 12:04
  • @hcheung I'm not sure because the whole system works fine when nothing is plugged on relays (I'm testing a light again but during 24h) Feb 11 '20 at 12:08

    I installed the L-C Power Filter between the breadboard and ESP as advised by @gdb. 24 h - no reset -> it was the solution. Thanks all of you for your help and your time. The topic is closed for me. Mar 24 '20 at 7:28

Try add some power filter like this: An LC filter

Between the breadboard and ESP board.
